San Bernardino, CA – San Bernardino Police Department Traffic Unit conducted a DUI/Drivers License checkpoint on 01-23-15, in the 300 block of W. 9th Street in San Bernardino between the hours of 6:00 p.m. And 2:00 a.m. Checkpoints are placed in locations that have the greatest opportunity for achieving drunk and drugged driving deterrence and provide the greatest safety for officers and the public.
DUI/Drivers License checkpoints have been shown to lower DUI deaths and injuries. A major component of these checkpoints are the deterrent effects it has on those who might drive drunk or drugged impaired, bringing about more awareness and encouraging everyone to use sober designated drivers.
The San Bernardino Police Department deployed additional officers to conduct a citywide Click-It-or-Ticket Enforcement Operation from 7:00pm to 3:00am on Saturday, January 24, 2015 with a special focus on seatbelt and child restraint seat violations.
During this detail officers made 40 traffic stops. 5 people were given FSTs, 3 of which were arrested for DUI (2 alcohol/ 1 drugs). 2 additional people were arrested (1 for warrants/1 for Non-DUI charges). 7 people were cited for either having a suspended/revoked license or were unlicensed drivers. 11 citations were issued for seatbelt violations and 12 citations were issued for other misc. traffic violations. 6 vehicles were impounded with 4 of those on 30-day holds.
